The Kelowna Fire Department will conduct its annual charitable open house this Sunday at Fire Hall No. 1 on Enterprise Way.

“We’ll kick things off with a pancake breakfast and coffee, conduct some fire safety demos, and kids can hop into one of our fire engines and meet our firefighters,” KFD fire prevention officer Gayanne Pacholzuk said in a press release. “It’s always great to bring the community together in a fun and interactive way while also getting to share important information about how we can all do our part for fire safety.”

The morning will include a car extraction demonstration with the Jaws of Life as well as a high angle rescue demonstration. A Wildcat helicopter used to battle regional wildfires will also be on site.

“We’ll have an array of emergency vehicles there and conduct a live burn demo, plus kids can enjoy face painting, a bouncy castle and much more,” Pacholzuk said. “There’s something for all ages, and we invite everyone to stop by to meet our local firefighters.”

Donations received “in the boot” at the event will go to the Kelowna Professional Firefighters Charitable Society.
